Hands On with PlayStation Remote Play

remote play1We go hands on with PlayStation Remote Play to see if the feature is all that it’s cracked up to be. At launch, the system offered a single quality setting for streaming, and it has since been patched to include “High” and “Normal”.  PC users will note that this does little to indicate what sort of resolution one can expect with each setting. My first impression of remote play was not a good one. However, I have tried it a few times since and have found gameplay to be acceptable. More on that after the jump.

‘LittleBigPlanet 3′ Update 1.05 Brings Massive Improvements to PS3 & PS4

LittleBigPlanet_3

Be it on PS3, PS4, or PS Vita, you simply cannot go wrong with a LittleBigPlanet game. The most recent entry, LittleBigPlanet 3, was released in fall for PS3 and PS4 with new gameplay modes and new characters. As it is with games with a heavy multiplayer core, the game hasn’t been without its fair share of problems which are likely only heightened by the fact that it had to be built on PS3 and PS4. While the PS4 can boast more robust graphics and physics alongside a much more modern architecture for online connectivity, the team behind the game likely couldn’t fully tap into it unless they created two separate projects at once; one for PS3 and one for PS4.

Now with LittleBigPlanet 3 Update 1.05, a massive amount of fixes are coming to both platforms with the PS4 patching coming in at 495MB while PS3 users get a break with just a 110MB download. After the jump, the full details.
